Webster´s Dictionary Definition of Metamorphosis: In Biology. a profound change in form from one stage to the next in the life history of an organism, as from the caterpillar to the pupa and from the pupa to the adult butterfly.

The choice will be ours to make. We need to start asking the right questions and making the right decisions based on those answers before we we go down the wrong path that may be irreversible.
